Heritage Display Program

The Heritage Display program serves to preserve the history of the Supply Corps through high quality displays designed to capture the traditions and customs of the Supply Corps as well as tell its cherished story. The primary venues for the displays are the Memorial Ship Museums such as the USS Midway and Battleship North Carolina.  Traveling displays depicting the Vietnam era heritage of the Supply Corps are also being developed.

For more information or to get involved with this program, contact Foundation Chief Staff Officer Jack Evans at CSO@usnscf.com.
 

Heritage Display on Battleship NORTH CAROLINA

The Supply Corps Foundation's latest Heritage Display is onboard the Battleship NORTH CAROLINA (BB55).  The NORTH CAROLINA recently installed a new exhibit to enhance interpretation of the enlisted men's Galley. Visitors learn about what the Supply Department Cooks made for a "taste of home" on Thanksgiving 1942 when BB55 was in Fiji. The Foundation grant funded faux food, protective cover, and new interpretive signs. The exhibit helps bring the Galley to life and visitors pause to admire the display and learn more about the Battleship's daily life during wartime. Many of BB55's visitors do not know anything about ships or the Navy but they relate to universal topics such as food and feeding large groups of young men.
